. in june of 2009, fbi directer acknowledged the challenge facing the bureau stating, "it is not sufficient for us as an organization to respond to a terrorist attack after it has occurred. it is important for us as an organization to develop the intelligence to anticipate the terrorist attack developing intelligence, developing facts. and the past we looked at collecting facts for the courtroom. we now have to think of ourselves as gathering facts painting a picture of a particular threat understanding the risk and moving to reduce that risk. and i couldn't agree more with the directer's statement. and then on november 5, 2009, a gunman walked in the soldier readiness center at fort hood, texas and shouted the jihaddic term. and opened fire on unarmed soldiers and civilians. he killed 13 and wounded 43 42 others. was the most horrific terrorist attack on the u.s. soil since 9/11. today we will exam the facts of the fort hood case as we know them to better understand how these facts that seem so obviously alarming now were so missed by seasoned professionals and to understand how the fbi
terrorist activities. the fbi agent in san diego described washington's inquiry into major hasan as slim, quote-unquote. the case was dropped until november 5th when the media began circulating reports of the massacre. at that time the san diego agents knew exactly who the perpetrator was saying, quote: you know who that is, that's our boy. years before the fbi knew of nidal hasan, the army major was being noticed by his superiors and colleagues at walter reed army medical center where he was a resident being trained to care for soldiers coming home from war. .. disaster and psychometry to have completed the master of public health at the uniformed services university. he has a key interest in the failure fe fe and has shown a capacity to contribute to the psychological understanding of islam and nationalism and what may relate to the national security and army interest in the middle east and asia. these officer evaluation reports were inaccurate. these were all flags none of which reacted. so many flies in this case. they don't present the facts that represent character in reali
recognize the methods deserve some form of action. under fbi policies that then existed they can set what was called a routine discretionary action league, because it was not, they're so indication of anything imminent, something that required a 24 hour or 48 hour response. that meant it was a routine lead which was resolved in the ordinary course of business. it also meant a wf oh would exercise its discretion on how to handle the lead. a 90 day period that was in existence was an informal fbi practice at that time. we recommend that the established trade within which leads must be acted upon. the fbi in turn has also eliminated these discretionary action leaves and has required actual colleagues that are set out from other offices. >> let me ask each one of you if you think that we do as well as we possibly could in making assessments of individuals when they're going to be placed in certain kinds of positions, relative to evaluation, as people seek employment, as people take assignments and have access to certain kinds of opportunity. do we assess their personaliti personalities, or do

, and we work in cooperation with doj and especially with the fbi to investigate and prosecute cyber criminals. we also have a focal point for the government's cybersecurity outreach and awareness efforts. it's important to note that private industry owns and operates the vast majority of the country's critical infrastructure and cyber networks. consequently, the private sector plays a critical role in protecting the nation's cybersecurity. dhs has initiated several programs to promote that public/private sector coordination. to enable us to coordinate responses to innocents at all levels just like we do, as i said before, for incidents in the physical world. the private sector is an active participation in the communications and integration certain. lots of acronyms in this business, but the ncic is a 24/7 watch center that coordinates activities across the federal government and with private sector partners providing watch and warning, analysis and a coordinate mated response. dhs is also leading efforts to protect critical information infrastructure by sharing actionable cyber thr

governmental areas, department of defense, fbi. i just don't see enough effort or enough success at that local level, sometimes that information can be just a catalyst to spring the network of information that really will tell us something. what are your recommendations that really do a better job at the local level of having them be part of that information network? and i know there's agencies who don't want to go down to that level for fear some of that information might be breached it by the other side of that is, without sharing that information at the local level you could really lose probably the most important information that you can have in front of you, and the most time sensitive way. >> had some successes of government with a national network of fusion centers, and their increasing maturity's, those efforts, close involved with fbi and doj and other federal agencies. i talked about the czar initiative before. 300,000 police officers in this country have been trained, the first time that i know of where these police officers have been through the same training that was around the be

to government cyber and wisdom sitting next to secret service agents and fbi agents so they're all sharing the information in near real-time, machine to machine speed, not necessarily just human to human. so they can get that overall operational picture to identify cyber risk. and then it becomes actionable because the energy sector person sits there and says, that's important to me in this way, and i need that information to protect my sector which may be different than what the water person sees. so than by doing that and collecting and sharing classified information them unclassified information, per type -- proprietary information, we have a better idea of what activity is and how the activity propagates through these various sectors. so it's something that can be enhanced. is something that can be expanded on that is something that currently exists. >> so that is an effective system, capability to provide the very similar information sharing to what congress would like to legislate. is there an awareness problem? >> i think it's an evolutionary problem. so we started the capability, a
well-respected people. when i got the fbi file because bob was an fbi agent in world war ii, turns out that no one ever forgot they were jewish. when they interviewed the townspeople. fine, high type jewish folks. it was relevant, but not to bob as he was growing up. he didn't see anti-semitism, and as i said in the book, he thought the cutest girls were at the baptist young people's union. that's where he was. he wanted to get legislated president of the union, but the minister, i think it's minister, i'm jewish, so i don't know what i'm talking about, but the minister said he couldn't be. if not for that, he would have been elected president. [laughter] sometimes he tells the story and says he was legislated president, and then they have to take it back because they explained that he was jewish. i think that among his peers, it was not that big of an issue that he was jewish. when he got to the university of texas, whose student body population was larger than the whole top he grew up in, it was an issue. he was only invited to pledge jewish fraternities, and it was a rude awakening
's one of the worst things i found out. that depressed me a great deal. this came out of the fbi records. there is material there suggesting that j. edgar hoover really organized a campaign among some of his agents to talk publicly, loud voices, about how adlai stevenson was gay. and hoover did keep a file on stevenson. you know that he had this special closet of stuff in his office. and he would also tell fbi agents to try to circulate this in chicago. so this is one of these sort of hidden rumors that in '52 nobody talked about this openly; it was too soon. but there was a lot of whispering around about how adlai stevenson was gay. and this was totally untrue and totally unfair. and so when we think about dirty campaigns, i think we've got to remember 1952 as a very dirty campaign. c-span: you say that near the end he ballooned to 200 pounds. >> guest: 220 pounds, yeah. c-span: what was his normal weight when he was governor? >> guest: probably about 160, 180. c-span: what happened? >> guest: well, i think the last part of his life he really became somewhat obsessive. he did have a fam
bringing them inspect the fbi, cia, white house. so the infull traition has been going on for quite awhile. it's serious business. we need a president who is going to be able to take this on and not worry about the political correctness. the reason -- one the huge reasons we're in the mess because president bush and president obama for slightly different reasons, the political correctness aspect has driven a lot of it. we're doing muslim voted reach. it's not a war against islam. we need a president and leadership here who can identify who is the enemy, cho who is the threat how we're going to deal with it. bill oh o rely asked mr. president is the muslim brotherhood a threat to the united states? they are a sworn enemy of the united states. there's a lot of talk about how they renounced violence. that's a temporary measure until they get power. watch what they do in egypt when they have power. if you're a christian in egypt you better your bags and get out now this is curtains for you. so when bill asked ron paul that ask he tap danced. he didn't answer it directly. of course the muslim b
for several reasons. one, there was the fbi's and counterintelligence program which was quite successful and enduring a few things, installing agent provocateurs within the party which created some of this discord that exist now in the party between different factions. they were successful in all intel program, just police repression. so people were dying, a part of a to write about in the book is that health programs, there's a way in which the health programs respond to the fact that members of the party were dying in armed conflicts with the police, with state authorities, federal authorities and the sorts of things. with that decimate the ranks of the part in a very fatal and material way, was partly why the party disbanded. and i think politics just change. things change. so the party ends in the early 1980s. the world's change between 1968 and 1980, and activists have it easier i think we know in the social movement literature and sociology, to be an activist when you're 18 or 20, you do have mortgaged we you don't have children. the life stakes can be often a lot lower for being a
to the fbi, but in the meantime, i've been instructed to give you this link. and the link was to a media matters hit job on the entire book and didn't even address the specific question that the reporter was looking for. now, the reason that's relevant is that the daily caller did a big expose about how the white house was working with media matters on messaging on a weekly basis, and, of course, media matters pushes their talking point out to left-leaning web sites, mainstream web sites and msnbc and i'm not sure about cnn, but the fact is they're working together. so the idea that the justice department would be willing to, um, peddle this george soros-funded web site material to try and discredit the entire book, um, really shows what they're interested in. they're not interested in answering any questions, as usual they're handing it off to an outside organization. but also they are collaborating on messaging and using media matters as a way to get their talking points out to the media. >> katie, i have a question. this is such a dumb, stupid plan that anybody in this room would have

's of a significant concern for us and again i'll look forward to working with secretary napolitano and the fbi on this issue. >> thank you very much. >> senator, and i, too, congratulate you on your years of service and service to the country. i reflect what madam secretary and director olsen both stated. we have a weapons of mass destruction directorate that works closely with the department of energy, with composed of dhs as well as nctc, and tracking, following, and trying to be in a mode where we are able to detect any thefts along those lines. we will have to have some time to review the factual aspects of the gao report and get back to you on that, but we work closely with our counterparts in these agency, as was the department of energy to mitigate those threats. >> thank you again for your partnerships. it really shows. as you know, secretary napolitano, as you know the senate failed to pass comprehensive cybersecurity legislation prior to the august recess. because the process of the legislation here are damn, i support the personal use of his authorities to improve cybersecurity of t
with fixing it. things like the supervision of the process of investigation is very different for the fbi then it is for atf. my basic question is why? why does fbi have one supervising and atf has a different process overseen by the same doj. the scope of the task that you mention in your report with atf if there is irregular functioning criminal function overlap at times and there are obvious issues. and i'm going to either tunica comment. the size of the agency and what they're trying to accomplish. as i read through your report, got to page 338 and there was a very interesting comment that basically alluded to the fact that atf of phoenix is over their head. they were trying to take on the massive task in outlets like they were trying to accomplish something big, but they didn't have the right people, were not coordinated this particular group of asians were in way over their head and should not be engaged. again, goes back to the scope of the task. i've got one more issue it to visit, but i want to talk about the issue of regulatory versus criminal responsibility in the task given to
the magazine is being led by the fbi, and -- >> the criminal acts. obviously it wasn't national-security. that is along the lines of what was wrong, what the best fishing could have done better. >> at the cow would refer you for questions about security about -- at the beth because the facility and broadly speaking in a diplomatic facility consulates and embassies around the world to the state department. in terms of the statements that were corrected by defense our state, i would refer you to those departments. you know, from our perspective we got out to you the information that we had as soon as we had it, and it was available. our assessment of what happened has been based on the best available of affirmation that we've had. there is an ongoing investigation led by the fbi now going back to specifically what happened. levirate the result of that investigation for more information about the protests and the attacks and what precipitated them into participated in them. with the primary objective here of fulfilling the president's commitments that those people responsible for t
and until the f.b.i. identified everyone involved and in the custody of the united states. this is while our foreign policy would be determined by half a dozen unruly people anywhere in the world. i've seen unworkable and unwise legislation before. this may win the prize. it would be a colossal waste of f.b.i. resources be impossible to implement and those in this country who believe in freedom of speech are we really going to fill up our prison with thousands of foreigners including those who engage in peaceful demonstrations because it includes them. are we really going to cut off aid to the government of egypt which has reaffirmed its peace agreement with israel, sent troops against the egyptian extremists in the sinai deploy police to protect the u.s. embassy and is negotiating an agreement to reform its economy. are we also going to cut off aid to israel, which we do, of course. so mr. president i ask my full statement be placed in the record. like so many republicans and democrats who have spoken against this, it makes no sense. the presiding officer: without objection, the full statem
? was in phoenix or the fbi office in phoenix and what do we know about that? >> guest: with this in perspective. the alcohol tobacco and firearms bureau is the main regulator of the firearms of the united states, yet the problem is that legal firearms are used and for crimes. less than 1% involving guns involve the lawfully obtained firearms. murder and so on these are almost always using black market guns so the agency for a long time wanted jurisdiction to expand its operations because -- had the needed to have an area that the lawfully obtained firearms were used to expand the jurisdictions. at the center and the political party also wanted about a recent supreme court case that had identified the second amendment, and they wanted to bring back the gun control so there was an ideological agenda and a career agenda. the operation had been tried on a wide receiver but there were more controls in place and the operation was a failure. it wasn't a dangerous failure as fast and furious but they decided to double their mistake early in the obama year. how far it went with the president involved in
. why does the fbi come to our reservations to investigate murders persist the state in some communities in this whole issue of jurisdiction and who has jurisdiction. one of the issues, while we are in in the hill today dealing with violence against women and trying to figure out how can tribal governments be able to have the jurisdiction to be able to protect their women and children from perpetrators of wrecks another issue that you deal with is the foundation a foundational piece in your book is you talk about -- a little bit about the adoption of high number of children in foster care and you know we are waiting for that decision coming out in south carolina about indian child welfare and i think people who are policy decision make or should read this book because it has those grounding principles and the origins of the issues we are we are dealing with now. so as you are dealing with you now, the few minutes we have left i want to be able to -- what are those policies and what were you thinking when you included those that you included in the book and what were your hopes? >> guest:
are growing in mexico. it's a little bit of a diversion but you know that chart that the fbi puts out with productivity continuing to grow and wages flat, the same charge is true of canada and the same charge is true of mexico. so, there is plenty of room here for an expansive and inclusive politics, but first you have to get the out of the trough. [laughter] talk into the microphone. >> actually i have a question about, you give a lot of great ideas but i'm wondering what your proposal on a day-to-day -- sounds like around education or a big picture story? a constitutional amendment movement was like -- [inaudible] >> there are people in this room there are professional organizers and, but you know it's like any other campaign. the idea i think is so simple and already you have 75% of the people with you. it doesn't seem too hard to me. to have success, to have good success. what it means literally is you have to create a campaign in all the states because at some point you have to get this put through the state. it's not going to happen -- though there are seven -- are fighting for

[applause] america's are in support of this president in good faith but today the time has come to turn the page. today the time has come for us to put the disappointment of the last four years behind us, to put aside the divisiveness and the recriminations, to forget about might have been and to look ahead at what can be. now is the time to restore the promise of america. [cheers and applause] many americans had given up on this president but they haven't ever thought about giving up. not on themselves, not on each other and not on america. what is needed in our country today is not complicated or profound. it will take a
as far as jurisdiction, why does the fbi come on to our reservations to investigate murders and the whole question've who has jurisdiction is one of the issues that -- on the hill today dealing with violence against women and trying to figure out, how can tribal government be able to have jurisdiction to be able to protect their women and children from perpetrators. another issue that you deal with as a foundational piece in your book you talk about the indian child welfare act, and the doings and the -- adoptions and high number of chirp in foster care, and we're waiting for this decision coming out on foster care about the indian child welfare, and people who are policy decisionmakers should read this book because it has those grounding principles, oorigins of the issues we're dealing with today. so, as you're dealing with the few minute wes have left, what of those policies -- what were you thinking when you included those pieces within the book and what were your hopes? >> guest: a lot of peep want at sustain studies 101. how does sovereignty work? what is indian child welfare? there'

counterterrorism center, the fbi come in the very charged with attacking our nation from terrorism and other disasters will be flashed in an indiscriminate way that it are signs were more potentially harming such vital programs as border security, intelligence analysis and the fbi's work. i have time and budget constraints require everyone to sacrifice and priorities to be sat and ways to be eliminated, we should ask where resources can be spent more effectively and what trade-offs should be made to balance the risk we face with the security we can afford. but we cannot afford, however is to weaken a homeland security structure that is helping to protect the citizens of this country. thank you, mr. chairman. >> thank you, secretary collins. secretary napolitano correct thank you for being with us through at the time through >> thank you through lieberman through like to thank director olson further partnership. mr. chairman, this is my 17th appearance before you. is my 44th here in overall since becoming president. i'm grateful for the tireless advocacy on behalf of dhs, not only during its
, from the f.b.i., and from the administration discussing this very question. gathering all the information we possibly can, making sure we have the facts before we make a quick judgment about the role of libya, the role of terrorists and what we've seen to date. it's a response by the libyan government, even the firing of one of their top officials who made an inappropriate remark relative to this attack. so, in conclusion, madam president, i encourage my colleagues to pause and look at the larger picture when it comes to foreign aid. cutting off aid and disengaging from these countries is exactly what the perpetrators of these attacks and protesters are trying to achieve. i do not know if supporting the governments in this volatile region in this revolutionary movement will bring us the results we so urgently need. but if we are to review thoroughly the tools available to us -- and i'm convinced that we must -- we should not begin by throwing out the tools that we have. we need to sharpen those tools and better define their use but not discard them prematurely. madam presi
a drill agencies like homeland security, fbi, border patrol is using drugs on the southern and northern border. they've been giving out to companies that make the drones. permits have been issued to some universities that are working with the pentagon and they've been given to about 30 police departments to experiment with drugs. well, the drug manufacturers have been very upset with the faa and send the, this is a growth industry. we need a market. we need to solve these drones at home. but speed up this process. so what do they do? they formed their own lobby group in the new piece of legislation and they got their own members of congress to form a drone caucus. now think about all the things you can have a caucus about to help schoolchildren, to feed the homeless. i mean, a million things. there's a group of 58 congresspeople do think it's their duty elected by we the people to go into congress and address what they say is the urgent need to see more of these unmanned vehicles being used both overseas and here in the united states. so they passed a piece of legislation on february 14
had no interest whatsoever in writing about fdr himself. but sometimes things happen. the fbi library library is an
for fbi, not cia. okay? this is a job for the michigan state police, not the department of defense. okay. by the way, by and large most of the information we knew, okay, we knew about umar farouk abdulmutallab, the guy coming into detroit was all foreign derived. i think it was mistake to mirandize him in 50 minutes because our base of him is foreign intelligence. to me the right entry point was, enemy combatant, nation at war, deal with it that way. on the other hand if someone is discovered and prevented in an attack in the united states by the fbi the roots of that information are law enforcement derived. the going in position is we ought to treat this as a law enforcement problem and enter this into the american court system. i suppose if we stayed her long enough we could think of exceptions but in broad measure my sense is that is how we should deal with it. i hope made it worth your while coming here this afternoon. i hope you have left with more questions than you had when you came in. that was my intent. and thank you very much for the opportunity. and, go air force.
